For the past two years (see our 2018 and 2019 lists), we’ve been honored to publish a list of “10 Weird Writers to Save Us All,” wherein we celebrate weird fiction, horror, bizarro, or related writers who might not have gotten the recognition they deserve by more popular media entities. Every year, this list gets a lot of exposure. There’s no better opportunity to put your favorite writers in the spotlight!
How do we chose these writers? We don’t. You do!
Public nominations will be open until August 15, 2020, and winners will be voted on by a panel of anonymous writers, editors, and other individuals connected to horror, weird fiction, and bizarro. The final list will be published here, with a short description of each author based on your comments and our research.
As a reader, you may nominate up to three weird writers by emailing your selection to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel encouraged to explain your choices briefly, since your comments will be presented to the panel for consideration during the vote. Please share this announcement as well, since the more sharing = more exposure for these hardworking authors, and that’s the whole point of this list. Please do not nominate yourself, since self-nominations will be disregarded.
We can’t wait to see the list you cook up this year! Show your appreciation to the underexposed writers you enjoy now by sending us a nomination!
